LOOK: Jennifer Garner's Exhausted Mom Selfie Represents All Parents

October 4, 2017

Jennifer Garner… we hear you.

The 45-year-old mother of three just shared an “exhausted mom” selfie on her newly created Instagram account, and we ALL can relate to the image.

You’ll never need coffee more than the day after “Yes Day!”. #fiveyearsrunning #wesleptinatent #inthebackyard #coffeeismyyesday #yesday #nationalcoffeeday #imgettingthehangofhashtags (“Yes Day!"-- a fantastic children's book by @missamykr)

A post shared by Jennifer Garner (@jennifer.garner) on


The actress shared the photo of having a “Yes Day” with her kids. Garner shared that she has been celebrating the occasion for about 5 years with her kids, and it was inspired by a popular children’s book.

Yes Day! is a book written by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, and the book’s plot centers around the one day of the year where adults always respond to their kid’s requests with “YES.” A lot of Jennifer’s Instagram followers commented with tales from “Yes Day’s” with their own family.

Camping outside in a tent was apparently on the items on the agenda for 2017’s “Yes Day.” So it’s pretty understandable that the 13 Going on 30 actress would be exhausted. We cannot imagine she had a good night’s sleep in that tent.

Thanks for showing the world what parenting really looks like, Jennifer. It’s exhausting!
